30 for 30 Summer 2011: Outfit 1

I would like to introduce you to the skirt that I'm going to wear probably five times during the 30 for 30.
Olive green peasant top - Arden B., Skirt - Anthropologie, Strappy wedges - Jeffrey Campbell
I got it at Anthropologie with its blue cousin and felt like I didn't have tops to go with either one. Le sigh. What's a girl to do? Pull out both skirts when building her 30 for 30 wardrobe, of course. And look through every single shirt in her closet and discover that there are actually tons of tops that go--hurray! That's why I had to rock it on the first day of 30 for 30.
I put my hair in two messy buns (Husband said it was reminiscent of Princess Leia) to vibe with the top, and I felt cute all day! Thinking about my hair for just two seconds really pays off.
Tonight I went to a book club meeting to talk about Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris. Most people didn't like it, but it was an easy read that brought up interesting conversations. I'm glad it wasn't my first encounter with Sedaris because it isn't typical Sedaris and it's not his best. My full review is here on Goodreads.


  1. great start to the remix! everything goes so well together. and your hair is super cute--wish i was able to pull that off! :)

  2. Thanks! The shirt was a last-minute addition to the 30 for 30, and I'm so glad I found it hiding in the back of the closet because the color is perfect.

    The best part of the hair was that it gave me soft waves the next day!

  3. This outfit is so cute! I love it! Now I wish I hadn't passed on that skirt...really looking forward to seeing the rest of your 30 for 30 outfits. =)

  4. Thanks! I wasn't sure about the skirt...until I put my hands in the pockets (love pockets) and twirled around the fitting room some (love twirling around too). I can't wait to wear it with the other planned 30 for 30 shirts.

  5. You look so cute, love the hairstyle, I tried it out too

  6. Glad you tried the hairstyle too! Super easy, right? Just take two seconds to do it, and you automatically look like more of a style girl just because you did something, anything to it.
